Hello Beautiful Friends,

Have you ever been walking on campus and just think really funny things to yourself? I know I do everyday, so let’s put some of those thoughts into words. And let’s realize other people think the funny/weird thoughts we do.

1. Slow Walkers

Man slow walkers. Do you pass them? Go slow to stay behind them? Slyly sneak beside them? The possibilities are endless, which one do you normally go with? The best is when you overhear their conversations and it’s actually really interesting, so you walk slower to listen.

2. The Wave

We’ve all been there, you think you see someone you know from across the distance so you wave. Then it turns out it was some random person and they look very confused. This happens to me a lot, but most of the time I befriend them, so that’s a win!

3. Geese

Ever been casually walking to class and been attacked/chased by a geese? I walk by the geese and inside I am freaking out. I ask myself “will today be the day they chase me?”, “attack me?”, or even “the day I die?”. Very serious contemplations while walking on campus by the geese.

4. Food

Ever daydream about food? I do 24/7, let me tell you, it’s gorgeous. When you’re on campus, do you ever just plan your day around what food places you’ll eat at? This is a serious matter, food is the best thing on the planet, besides sleep.

5. Bikes

This one is terrifying to say the least. You’re casually walking to class and you see a bike approaching you, do you go left? Right? Stand still? There is no telling which way the bike person is going to go, so you are living in fear when you pass the people riding on bikes. One time, I almost got hit by a bike and it was horrifying.

6. Attractive People

Ever been walking on campus and see people who you think are really attractive and make you do a double take. Picture this: you’re casually enjoying nature and then see a very attractive person and you try to act natural, but just keep staring at them. Happens to the best of us.

7. Talking to Yourself

I do this quite a bit when I am walking on campus. Whether it be studying information for a test or just thinking about life. Getting lost in thought and in conversation with yourself is pretty entertaining.

8. Theta Pond

This might just be me, but when you walk by Theta Pond do you ever just want to jump in? Because I do every single time I walk by it. One day it will happen, but until that day the urge to jump in will remain.

9. Classes/Grades

We have all experienced this one. Whether it be finals week in the library or the beginning of the semester. You either have a grin ear to ear or you are crying. Whatever your emotions may be, we are all stressed because it seems like our to do lists never end. But we smile through it all, because we love college and all the amazing people we have met! :)

10. Orange Baggers

I LOVE the orange baggers. I’m that weirdo who smiles at them and tells them to come here, while also yelling “GO POKES!”. I love seeing the orange baggers, because those are potential students who could come here, which is amazing to think about! If you are an orange bagger reading this, just know you are amazing and I hope you come to OSU!

I hope you enjoyed a look into my thoughts while I walk on campus!

Love Your Friend,

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

-Having struggled with acne prone skin for years, I was cautious to try a new serum on top of the other products I've come to trust.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
